Hello Archive Patrons,

We have just rolled out a new HTTP-based uploading system.
This will allow folks to simply click through 2 pages in your web browser to fully upload and create an item.

Look at the top right for the new [Upload] button to the left of the "sign in" / login section.
(spoiler: it is here. 8-)

This system allows files up to 100MB to be uploaded and greatly streamlines the entire process. Please give it a try! You may even check a box for "test item" simply to try it.

Enjoy!

Hi,

To upload to a collection other than an open source one, you'll still need to use the old upload method. You can get there by clicking the "files over 100 MB" or "more than 10 files" links on the create page at http://www.archive.org/create/ or just go directly to:

http://www.archive.org/create.php?ftp=1

Thanks,

Alexis

My only complaint is that it strips any tag information or at least ignores it. If you have track titles they don't show up in the player whereas they are there if you use FTP.
